Texas Council of School Attorneys
The Texas Council of School Attorneys (CSA) provides a statewide forum on practical legal problems faced by local public schools and their attorneys. The council works to promote closer relationships among school attorneys. A major focus is to offer continuing education programs and other assistance for attorneys. Council membership is available only to those attorneys who represent at least one school district client. (CSA Bylaws)
Membership in the Texas council includes membership in the National School Boards Association Council of School Attorneys. The NSBA council sponsors at least two legal programs annually for its members in different locations across the country.
The Texas council meets for its annual school law seminar and business meeting each fall at the TASB/TASA Convention. Texas council members receive the council’s monthly newsletter, TASB School Law Update, which reviews legal developments affecting school districts throughout the state.
